Volunteer drivers needed to help vetsget to Medical Center 

PLATTSBURGH — The Clinton County Veterans Service Agency manages the DAV van schedule for transporting patients from the North Country to the Stratton VA Medical Center in Albany.

More volunteers are needed to maintain the schedule because several can no longer drive due to health concerns or because they have left the area.

The agency is purchasing a third van for the fall of this year to meet the increased demand and needs of the veterans.

To be accepted as a driver, drivers must complete a physical through the VA Medical Center and participate in its training program.

Anyone interested is asked to call 565-4720.
